4 Statement of work — Purpose and description
A statement of work (SOW) defines what is to be delivered and to be done by the supplier in terms of requirements, not how to accomplish the work by supplier.
The SOW is a valuable tool to capture the work to be done by the supplier for contract management.
The SOW is one of the attachments in the business agreement and is consistent with all sections of the business agreement.
The SOW is the major document in the business agreement which forms the basis for effective management of a project. A SOW serves as the standard for determining if the supplier meets the stated management requirements.
The requirements in the SOW are stated in terms of results needed rather than how to proceed in order to achieve those results.
